When Apple first announced the iPad, it did not own the trademark on the name. Now, after some negotiating with Fujitsu, it does, and just in time for its touch-screen tablet to go on sale next week.
The blog PatentAuthority tracked down the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office document Friday that shows Fujitsu turned the iPad trademark over to Apple officially on March 17. Though it's not disclosed, we can assume that Fujitsu was compensated in some way for assigning that trademark, which it has owned since 2003, to Apple.
Here's the document showing Apple's ownership … Read more

LAS VEGAS--How small is too small? For those with an ultraportable obsession, consider this year's pocket-computer of note, the Fujitsu Lifebook UH900 Multi-Touch handheld PC. While there more than a few passing similarities to Sony's Vaio P series of ultra-small laptops announced just one year ago, Fujitsu's adds one or two additional tweaks to the formula. The UH900's 5.6 inch screen has resistive multitouch touch that is more responsive than other pressure-based screens we've tried. While a 5.6-inch display turns productivity into a bit of a joke, at least text and images are … Read more

But server shipments improved, falling only 17.9 percent for the quarter, compared with 30.1 percent in the second quarter, noted the IDC report released Wednesday.

With radio frequency identification tags already showing up in school uniforms, it makes sense they'd make their way into other types of uniforms as well.
But what to do when said uniforms are worn in manufacturing plants where garments have to be sterilized with heat so microorganisms and other outside pollutants don't contaminate the goods? Wouldn't the RFID tags turn into goop?
Funny you should ask. Fujitsu has come up with a flexible, ultra high frequency (UHF)-band RFID tag that can withstand temperatures up to 250 degrees Fahrenheit (much, much hotter than CNET's New York … Read more
